Photographic Story Every year, when the native orchids bloom in our backyard, I have wanted to take a picture of them, but conditions have never been right. I was taking some photo-workshop students into my back yard when we came across this orchid. It was a perfect situation for a photograph. It had rained the night before, so the ferns surrounding the orchid were fresh. I was so excited that the next day I took my camera out into the swamp, jumped into the chilly winter swamp water, and took the picture. Analog – Archival Silver Gelatin Photograph Clyde’s silver gelatin black and white images are created using an 8” x 10”, 11” x 14”, or 12” x 20” view camera. Clyde prints his images in his own darkroom on fiber-base paper in a limited edition. The photographs are selenium toned, then mounted and matted to current archival standards. His images come in sizes from 8” x 10” inches to 5’x 8’ feet. His love of art and nature is seen in the exceptional detail and more subtle textures of his photography.
